One of my husband¡¯s duties as a novice
drill instructor at Fort Jackson, S.C., was

After everyone had made it through the
chow line, he sat them down and told
them, ¡°There are three rules in this mess
hall: Shut up! Eat up! Get up!¡±
Checking to see that he had everyone¡¯s
attention, he asked, ¡°What is the first
rule?¡±

instructors, 60 privates yelled in unison,
¡°Shut up, Drill Sergeant!¡±
